Confederations Cup Thoughts

A couple of things about the Confederations Cup matches being held in South Africa.

1. If ESPN is going to carry the games, would it be too much to ask that they not show highlights from earlier Cup games, or mention the scores, or show the scores at the bottom of the screen? In this day of TiVo, a good many of their viewers haven't seen those games yet, but have them recorded for later viewing. I may not want to watch those matches in chronological order.

2. Would it be too much to ask that the people in the stands not blow those stupid fucking horns the ENTIRE GAME? Watch the match, people. Save your horns for when something happens. They sound like they're playing inside a nest of hornets.
